Best Deal on Trip Insurance

May 07, 2014
Fares from Washington DC, District of Columbia:

    Q. Where can I get the best deal on medical insurance, trip interruption, and other insurance while traveling?

    A. I recommend using to compare rates and policies. Be sure to download a copy of the actual contract before you buy and read the fine print. There’s no travel insurance policy that covers every eventuality and there are a lot of exceptions, exclusions, and loopholes. Some insurers offer “cancel for any reason” policies, but they typically refund only 75% of your trip cost and there are other restrictions.
